Abstract

Objective: Neural tube defects occur in approximately one in 1000 live births in the US. Myelomeningocele (MMC) is the most common and severe form of spina bifida aperta. In this study, we present a surgical modification of the bilateral fasciocutaneous rotation and advancement flap technique in MMC patients.
